I think that perhaps your eyebrows could be at a sharper angle, and maybe they could have defined your eyes a bit more. 

Also, having your hair done up makes a world of difference in how your makeup ends up looking.

Ooh I actually LOVE your makeup! You look so gorgeous! 

I do think it may be on the simpler/plainer side though. I think it’s appropriate for a wedding and I personally love simple makeup, but if that’s not what you want, I’d say add more color to the eyes.

I agree it’s not quite right, but it just needs to be tweaked. I would do a slightly lighter less bright pink lip (something a bit more neutral like a brown based pink) and less orange undertone on the blush more pink there. The eyes, brows and face are perfect.

Do you know which shade of blush they used? To me (and I’m no expert) the blush seems to have some tawny/orange undertones, whereas the lipstick is definitely very pink. I really like the lipstick and eyes together, but the blush is just standing out to me for some reason.

the makeup is perfect wedding makeup. bridal makeup is very very different from red carpet/glam makeup. first off due to photography. an artist has to be careful to use all matte products to ensure you get the best photos. plus bridal makeup should be classic and timeless. worst thing is looking back thinking “what was i thinking?!”

what is it about it that you arent liking? the only thing other thing that you may be missing would be if you wanted to try airbrush foundation instead. it REALLY does give that totally flawless finish.

if it helps this was my trial (airbrush foundation, dramatic eyes in browns and false lashes)

I think the lipstick color and highlight color above your eyes need to be coordinated some more – either a softer lipstick to match the eyeshadow color, or a more natual (less pastel pink) eyeshadow.

That lipstick is one of the problems

Many of the MAC artists aren’t makeup artists but sales people with a bit of makeup skill.  Have you considered a professional makeup artist?

Sorry but I think it looks ok, not fantastic. You need a makeup artist to do it rather than asales girl. It’ll make all the difference because there is nothing wrong with the colours, just how they are played with isnt quite there yet

I know what you mean, i think they didn’t go high enough up on your lid with the shadow to show the “darkness” your looking for. Did you show them a pic of what you wanted?  So when you open your eyes, you can’t really see the shadow effect. Something like this?

@ocbride119:  

That before and after is outstanding to me. Before she/you? looks fine, normal, everyday girl. But after she looks like a fricken model!

@Cash000:  Hahaha! no thats not me! however i have been doing a lot of research looking at makeup pics for my inspiration. I found this pic and others for a makup artist named Katie B. She is super expensive and works in the southern cali area. If you google “KAtie B makeup” you will find a swarm of reviews like on wedding wire and stuff with all the pics. All her pics are amazing. i heard she charges like 600 for her trial alone! Surprised

I feel like they need to do more with your eyes. You have really amazing skin and eye color, but the hues that the person chose almost seem to be working against you.

Have you tried looking into salons to see about getting a trial? Maybe check out Yelp or some other site to see where people recommend in your area.

some shades in your eye shadow look like they are on the pink/red side, which is clashing with the shade of pink that is on your lips.  I agree with going with a lip shade that is on the lighter pink/nude/tan side, dark brown liner, shades of copper shadow and an champagne highlight.  I think the shades that were used are slightly off for your skintone.
